Eye on Community 8.30.2010

Greetings Daevas!

It's been an exciting couple of weeks here at NCSOFT with the first official unveiling of Aion®: Assault on Balaurea™ at gamescom and the expansion's content coming onto our public test servers shortly after that. Aion: Assault on Balaurea is the result of a lot of hard work, and we truly believe you will see the results of that work in its new content and features.

Last week, members of the Aion team were at gamescom showing off the expansion in all its glory. Head on over to the NCSOFT at gamescom 2010 event page for live video from the show floor, pictures of the event, and more.

Gamescom 2010 Recap

505 exhibitors fought for the attention of over 250,000 visitors at this year's iteration of gamescom, the world's largest game exhibition. NCSOFT and ArenaNet attended in full force and unleashed a schedule packed with cool activities onto the unsuspecting show visitors.

Our cameras ran hot throughout the show, and the NCSOFT West flickr album exists to somewhat prove this theorem. We capture several snapshots from the NCSOFT cosplay contest held on Sunday, where an impressive Guilds Wars 2 Asura walked away as winner. The contributions were awesome though, and we'd like it to be known, simply in order to spice things up with a cliché, that if we could have given everyone a first prize, we would have!

The rewards you may claim are the following: …
